The Western Mail. the influential paper which serves Wales and the Marches, following up the discussion in the Times, recently opened its main feature page to spokesmen of the three main Christian groups within Wales on the subject of Christian reunion.
The series opened with two articles from the Bishop of Monmouth, representing the long-disestablished Church of Wales. The first dealt particularly with Catholic claims and made it quite clear that the Church of Wales had not the slightest intention of returning to Rome as if it were " a wandering sheep."
The second dealt with the Cranmerians' position against that of the " Free Churches." This was taken up by the second contributor, a spokesman of the Free Churches.
Then came the Rev. John A. G. Featherstone, of the Sacred Heart, Leckwith. Cardiff, who in a carefully reasoned article gave .he Catholic point of view, and dealt one by one with the principal points which had been raised.
His concluding point was that the need for a reunion remained in face of a menace, not religious as it was when Don John chased Islam from Europe. but atheistic. Some common Christian front, he said, was necessary.
